Well,in this case...
Was it designed before 1946 (i.e. up to and including 1945)?
Did it belong to an WW2 Axis nation?
Did it have a turret?
Was it armed with a gun with a calibre greater than 20mm?
Did it have a hull-mounted gun larger than an MG?
Check the previous question... I think Gryle covers you...
Actually it doesn't, I was trying to rule out some of the smaller "tankette" types and SPAA, Roel is trying to eliminated the M11/39, I think.
I'm trying to rule out tanks that carried their main gun in the turret. Either it is one of these (L.6/40, M13/40, M14/41, M15/42 or P40) or it's the M11/39 or an SPG.
L6/40 is out I think - the production version only has a 20mm. You missed the Fiat 2000 and 3000 which were very definitely pre-1946, Italian, turretted and +20mm, and even things like the "Carro Armato Celere Sahariano Medium Tank" (alright I admit I had to look that one up) which were designed and built but not in service, and I suppose a pedant would say technically a whole load of others that "belong" to Italy either as a result of capture or post war rearmamant.
Was there an Italian SPG with a turret?
As far as i know, there were all turretless...
So, in this case the answer to Question 7 is "no".
Well, to sum up;
-Designed before 1946
-Used in ww2
-Has a gun of caliber greater than 20mm
-The gun is turret-mounted
(sorry for the confusion... )
See, I think that leaves only the M11/39, or am I missing something?
Is it the M11/39?
